Windows 7 requires both HDD drives plugged in to boot up
I have searched around here for my problem and can't find a solution to my problem.
I have two SATA HDD's plugged into my computer, one of them has the operating system on it and the other one has my old XP installation and loads of others, although might have been formatted.
When I tried removing the old XP one the computer does not boot up after bios, with the error along the lines of:
"Can not find the boot device, please insert..."
It'll be nice not to have a Hard drive in there that I am not using, cheers!
